A Film Distributor, a Porn Star and I Get on a Plane Together

I know, sounds a little crazy, but on my flight to London, I sat next to a Romanian film distributor and next to her was a young Italian man heading home from LA after spending a year doing porn. At least he still talks to his family, right? He kept talking about his future wife and kids, too. They both turned out to be fun seatmates and we chatted for a good portion of the long, long flight.

    A friend of mine told a story about an acquaintance recently. He was always jetting off from SF to Europe to do business. Somehow it got out that he’d actually been doing European porn (and more hardcore than normal porn) the whole time and I guess now none of his friends can really look at him the same way.

    How did it just happen to come up in conversation that the guy was a porn “actor”? Was he traveling with the film distributor?

    I love your photographs.

    Speak to you soon.

    This was the start of a much needed laugh.

    It sure beats my flight into Vegas this morning with 5 screaming “Girls Gone Wild” chicks on either side of me.

    If it wasn’t illegal to start a fight on a plane, I would’ve :)

    I’d much rather sit next to a porn star. ;)

    When we sat down, we all just started chatting about who we are and where we were going, and I think I asked him if he was an actor or if he had gone to LA to pursue acting–he was an attractive guy who had moved to LA for a year–it seemed sort of obvious. He then said, I’m “sort of” an actor, to which the distributor (totally unrelated to him) pried a bit further and he said something about being in “adult” films. I certainly had plenty more questions I wanted to ask him, but I didn’t want to pry too much!

    Well guys… I’m the Romanian film distributor…. Actually I’m in touch again with the porn actor and it seems he’ll be sending some screeners in the near future. He was lots of fun and Francine, it was great to meet her…

    Best,

  6. […] If you’ve been following the blog from the beginning, you know that I started this trip on a British Airways flight sitting next to a Romanian film distributor and an Italian porn star (totally unrelated). Anyway, Cristina, the film distributor and I have emailed a few times, and today she finally read the post about my trip over here–and commented! Check it out. […]

    And just to reiterate, Cristina, your comment (and email) totally made my day. I hope I get to come visit soon :)
